Alas, we should have upped the wattage in our photo booth so the beautiful cocobolo top on this T5 C shows up in our photos. Not much you can do if viewing it on your phone, but if using a larger display choose photo 8 and set the brightness as high as possible, that way you'll see this Taylor the way it looks in normal interior lighting. Outdoors in sunlight, of course, it really lights up. What you can see in these photos is the delicate "Spires" inlay pattern, which is impressive regardless of the lighting but so delicate it doesn't dazzle you from across the room.
OK, enough about looks. This version of the T5 has two pickups plus a body sensor, so while the only visible pickup is the stacked humbucker disguised as a lipstick-like tube, there's another humbucker under the fingerboard extension (where you'd expect the traditional neck pickup to be). The body sensor is a transducer, and thanks to the 5-way switch and easy-reach control dials, you have an incredible array of tones to choose from ranging from a realistic acoustic guitar sound to most of what you can get from a hollow-body electric. It's in nearly perfect condition, as is the hardshell case, and weighs just over 6 1/4 lbs.
